Hey,
I'm working on a Honda Vtx 1300r and I'm trying to figure out how to make a Harley touring wheel work on my Vtx. It is the front wheel only so rear not an issue. The wheel is a 23 with a 1" axle and bearings, I'm looking for an option that won't require me changing my whole front end and can keep cost low. Any ideas on how I can make this work? The vtx is 7/8 axle or 20mm...

Just get a 7/8"ID-1"OD sleeve machined at the exact width you need between your forks' legs, turn some 1" ID spacers to center the wheel over the sleeve, put the resulting assembly in your forks with your oem axle and you're done

Should I get the American Rotor as well. I talked to my local shop they can make the sleeves and get it all aligned properly. I need their may be some issues with the rotor lining up so I'm thinking I order the matching rotor for the wheel to make it a little easier. Even suggestions on the parts catalog to go with?

I've looked around in the past and haven't found any wheel adapters or sleeves to run American set up on metrics

What wheel you go with? Was it the right axle size?

It's. 1in axle my bike is a 7/8. I have a local shop that's going to make it work I'm hoping they create the sleeves but he needs me to bring it in with the forks to see.

get some wide glide forks and run two 26" wheels side by side.you'll be the envy of all the cats at Starbucks ;)
